The Economy of Francesco is not just an event.
It is first of all a process, the occasion for young entrepreneurs, changemakers and economists from all over the world to get to know each other, exchange views and express themselves on the major topics of the global economy.
This is the community, this is the Economy of Francesco.
Young people’s thinking on environmental and economic issues should be taken very seriously.
There is too much need for an economy of Francis, and only young people can create it

“If Economy was a Woman… What would She see? What would She feel? What would She say? What would She DO?” This activity has made an irreversible impact on me. It was at our first online group meeting so full of expectations, doubts and hopes.
